Baby Aiden Matus Turns Up Safe in Belize City

On Thursday night, we reported on the alarming report of the kidnapping of nine-month old Aiden Matus from his home in the south. The baby boy was with his mother, Yoselyn Ordones, at their Bella Vista home, when two men reportedly entered the house and demanded fifty-thousand dollars. When the mother could not produce the money, baby Aiden was taken in exchange for the ransom. The men escaped with the child in a grey SUV. The news spread like wildfire on social media, police were identified and a Jasmine Alert was issued. Just after ten p.m., police were called out to the Lord Ridge Cemetery in Belize City where a resident in the area reported that a man had just left a baby nearby. Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams spoke briefly to the media about the case.

“Last night shortly after ten p.m., the child was found in the Cemetery area. Police went and located the child, the child was taken to the Domestic Violence Unit and then to the hospital to ensure that the child was in good state. Thankfully, the child was unharmed and I believe by now the child has been united with his parents.”

“Sir, how did you guys get this information that the child was there?”

“Well a neighbor or someone who lives in that vicinity, notified the police that they saw the child and they went and they located the child and they called the police and the police went in and retrieved the child from there.”


Duane Moody

“Sir, is there any information in terms of a grey SUV that brought the child there, because that’s what we understand. He was kidnapped from his home in Bella Vista by two dark complexion male persons in an SUV.”


ACP Chester Williams

“Well I am not sure. We have not received that information as it relates to the dropping off of that child. But I will tell you that there is certain information that we do have that we are following—that I will not be privy to tell you at this time because the investigation is still ongoing and I do not want to put too much information out there to alert those persons who are responsible that we are on their trail.”
